The Pick DE first name from list masking activity allows you to mask table columns by replacing them with a value from the first name picklists belonging to Germany.
This masking activity is functionally identical to the Pick first name from list masking activity, but automatically chooses Germany as the country to pick first names for.
|Table of contents|
To use the Pick DE first name from list masking activity, it must be placed inside a table masking activity or a similar activity that iterates over data. Once placed, you can choose the property you want to mask, and then select the type of data you want to replace it with. Furthermore, you can specify what subset of picklist data will be used to get the replacement values from.
Let's assume we want to mask first names in the Customers table with ones from Germany. We can do this by first placing the Customer masking activity, and then placing the Pick DE first name from list masking activity inside it. Then, we choose the FirstName column, and for the type of data to replace it with, we choose FirstName. We leave the picklist declaration as it is.
